Who’s involved?

The National Rural Crime Network is a unique collaboration, which gives people living, working and visiting rural areas a powerful voice. Together our members and supporters represent millions of people, and as such, we are uniquely placed to champion the needs of rural communities.

Established in July 2014, the Network is now supported by 34 Police and Crime Commissioners and police forces across England and Wales. The Chair is Tim Passmore, Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, and Vice-Chair is Peter McCall, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cumbria.

In addition to PCCs and the police, the Network includes a wide range of other bodies with a deep interest in community safety and rural affairs, ranging from Neighbourhood Watch to Historic England.
